interesting interested artistshouse twitter

Valuable Lesson #1

When I first joined twitter I was unsure of what use it would have and then I read a day changing bit of info (which I think came from artistshouse, who are a must to follow if you are an independent musician):

“Be interesting and interested”

I had to ask myself… ‘am I either’….hmm, interesting question. So I started with the ‘interested’ part.

As an artist it is sometimes easy to get stuck up one’s own bum, but once you pull your head out and look around for interesting things it’s amazing what you find and, by becoming interested, I found that I had become interesting (if RTs and #followfridays are any indication).

So once I had become interested (and met some interesting people along the way) I felt much more comfortable about putting my interesting stuff out there.
